    Hey Paul,
    I've been looking at ways to gamify our up coming wp site. Among the opaque pricing options and lack of information available from some of the bigger players after a few google searches i was happy to find links to your plugin. However, what started out with dismay due to the sheer dependence of having buddy press installed turned into excitement when I discovered support for WordPress.
    I was a LITTLE disappointed with the lack of features available natively within the plugin but that's to be expected with such an early version of this plugin but as its so new I think this is a good opportunity to suggest a few features.

    I'm not sure if its possible to do with any existing plugins at the moment but would be great to see badges (achievements) on users profile pages, and in their comments or posts. Also a leader board of highest achievers would be great. Possibly injected into a page via a shortcode.

    Can you tell me if this is currently possible/extendable through other plugins?

    It has a fair few features, but I've not yet written much documentation, so some of the more advanced stuff is hidden. Documentation is on the to-do for the v3.0 release.

    "User profile pages", and you're not using BuddyPress; where are you getting your user profile pages from? Let me know your thoughts. :)

    Leaderboards, and other things that might be widgets, will follow in a release after 3.0 (I've just ran out of time). I have some advanced shortcodes in 3.0, but not documented yet.
